Created by K–12 educators for K–12 educators, our multi- and interdisciplinary lesson plans activate art as a learning tool to achieve curricular, social, emotional, critical, and creative thinking goals across disciplines!
Every summer, Carnegie Museum of Art hosts the Educator Residency program, selecting 12 educators who teach across disciplines to spend three weeks at the museum. Residents work in small, grade-based clusters with museum educators to explore the museum as an educational resource to support classroom learning and experience creative recuperation.
Each resident produces an interdisciplinary lesson plan designed for a specific grade and set of curricular goals ranging from music to Mandarin to algebra and more, utilizing artwork in the museum’s collection as a foundation for learning.
